Fat Princess: Worth the Weight (Here’s the Date)

Deborah Mars's Avatar Posted by Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

Without further ado, we’re proud to announce that Fat Princess will make her royal appearance on the PlayStation Network this Thursday, July 30th for $14.99.

Fat Princess will be released simultaneously worldwide in N. America, Europe and Asia. A Japan release is also in the works, and we’ll have more information on that in weeks to come.

The sheer amount of questions submitted was fantastic, and we really appreciate everyone taking the time and effort to come up with some really good ones.

Please check out this interview with Chris Millar and Craig Leigh from Titan Studios for answers to your most burning questions. We’ll do our best to follow up and respond to some of the others we weren’t able to cover during the interview soon.

We mean it…see you on the battlefield soon!

Some of that interview kinda of irritated me.
The PR nonsense has to be peeled back to really get to the root of it.

Question: Party System:?
Answer: NO PARTY SYSTEM, NO SQUADS

Question: Custom Soundtracks?
Answer: NO. We didn’t want to take the time to implement this little itsy bitsy feature.

Question: Unique Single Player Campaign?
Answer: NO. similar to Unreal games, the 1/2 done single player is actally just a replication of the MP component with some A.I. Bots.

These 3 questions show me something about the developers. They look like really wonderful nice people, but why are teh shortcut always taken EVEN with SONY titles?

IF Sony doesn’t start implementing standards that games must use their featuers how do they expect to keep up with M$? That aggrivates me.

Fat Prnicess being an ONLINE ONLY title, Should have…….
*SplitScreen 4Player offline/online
*Custom Music (no reason not to have it)
*Party/Squad System

This is an ONLINE ONLY title!!!! Come on guys!! and 14.99$? Wipeout HD was 20$ upon release and offered Far more features!@

July 27th, 11:17 am

That is too much money. Im rich. Plus, Im over the hype. Sony, you are pathetic. Also, the fat princess devs.

KwietStorm said:

THANK you guys for finding the problem with the game, fixing it, and finally releasing it to us. This was easily my most anticipated PSN game since it was first shown and detailed.

APRIL FOOLS! O’ wait, it’s July… :$
Glad to see it finally here.

Can we be treat abit better in the future? We’ve been left to stew over the release date for the last month or two and we get told three days before release. Not good enough.

ROLO_ONFIRE said:

July 27th, 11:32 am

Enforcer_X said:

July 27th, 11:34 am

Yup!
Buying this too!

Looks like an ULTRA BLAST!

July 27th, 11:38 am

i’ll wait for reviews before deciding on getting this one. looks fun, though.. how was the beta, guys?

Moose4987 said:

July 27th, 11:42 am

PLEASE have splitscreen, and if it doesn’t, then at least have split screen dlc. please pleas PLEASE!!!

Sarges24 said:

July 27th, 11:50 am

Awesome!! Now I don’t want to go work Thursday night. Any chance you can just release it Wed; Lol. ;)

And right along the lines of my expected price point. Though I’m not a fan of $15 there’s some games that are absolutely worth it. I’m betting FP will be one of those. ;) Any higher and I’d have probably passed…

On another note… what’s up with the videos? I have to leave my [mouse] cursor on the video for it to play. If I move it off the video it stops and resets. This has become quite the nuissance when trying to watch videos on the blog. Especially when my screen times or I accidentally move the mouse. :( please fix. ;)

Frankie09 said:

July 27th, 11:57 am

Thanks Titan Studios and SONY for answering my question.

ShadOforce said:

July 27th, 11:59 am

Everyone complaining about the price:

$15 is totally worth it for this game. Trust me.

Can’t waiiiit! ><

Kama-sama said:

July 27th, 12:01 pm

I appreciate the focus on the core functionality, but I hope you guys decide to add those niceties later, like custom soundtracks and YouTube uploads.

ShadOforce said:

July 27th, 12:07 pm

I don’t understand the desire to have custom soundtracks.

Hey, here’s an idea: If you want custom soundtracks, mute the game’s BGM and play your own music at your place. o_o

DJnal05 said:

July 27th, 12:09 pm

its a must buy!!!

RuthlessEd said:

July 27th, 12:10 pm

When a developer keeps you in the dark about a feature, it almost always means that the feature isn’t available in the game.

So I’m guessing: no splitscreen.

syk1288 said:

I’m sick and tired of hearing people say “Cross Game Chat”. Just be patient you social freaks. Even though I love socializing. I can be patient. You never know they would probably give us that BIG firmware update when TGS09 comes up.

P.S.= If you saw the feature on the Xbox 360 and you know what it can do on the Xbox 360 you should stop calling it Cross Game Chat. On the Xbox 360 you can PRIVATE CHAT/PARTY CHAT while doing ANYTHING on the system no just playing games. So if you really just want to be chatting during games then keep saying cross game chat. I would prefer chatting at all times and during anything im doing on the PS3.

Just please stop calling it “Cross Game Chat”. It’s truly not called that.

July 27th, 12:47 pm
